(out of 5)

An eye-opener of a documentary whose testimonies will ravage your mind for days. Twenty percent of women in the American military have experienced sexual assault, a number that gets higher when taking into account that it is estimated that eighty percent of victims of sexual assault do not come forward. 301 more words

Break the Chain of Command, Break the Links of Injustice

Kirby Dick’s documentary The Invisible War, released in 2012, exposed the confounding way rape cases are handled within the United States’ armed forces. Because these cases must be tried through the chain of command, impartial justice is not an option for those who are sexually assaulted by military personnel, which is no small risk—3,553 soldiers reported such cases to the Defense Department between October 2012 and June 2013. 950 more words
